Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Very Best Baby Name Book, the #1 best-selling baby name book in the world, is now bigger and better. The most important changes are: more names (50,000 names vs. 30,000 names previously) and more lists to help readers choose (100 lists vs. 25 lists previously). You will find the lists not only fun to read but illuminating and extremely helpful for parents who want to pick names with strong positive associations and avoid names with strong negative associations.

The new lists of names have been selected to highlight names with strong positive associations,such as:·

names that suggest intelligence and competence for girls and boys·

names that suggest success for girls and boys·

names that suggest athletic prowess and strength for girls and boys·

names that suggest attractiveness for girls and boys·

names that suggest a good sense of humor for girls and boys

The new lists also highlight names with strong negative (or questionable) associations, such as:·

names that suggest stupidity and incompetence for girls and boys·

names that suggest low odds of success for girls and boys·

names that suggest an absence of athletic prowess and strength for girls and boys·names that give off sexual vibes for girls and boys'

In addition, Lansky provides lists of names strongly associated with famous people in the arts, professions, science, and business, as well as names associated with popular names from the New and Old Testament and from literature and history.

In short, Lansky has come up with the most useful — as well as fun — collection of lists available.

In addition, this book contains a variety of helpful, informative and fun features, including:

-advice on how to pick a name -baby name legal guide

- the 100 most popular girls names in 2003 -fascinating facts about names

- the 100 most popular boys' names in 2003 -stereotypes of name

- celebrity name changes -popular names inforeign countries

- celebrities' babies names

No wonder The Very Best Baby Name Book is also North America's best-selling baby name book and likely to stay that way for a long, long time.
